  DAMASCUS, May 17 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian air defenses on Friday evening intercepted luminous objects coming from Israel, state TV reported.

  The report is yet to give details on the nature of the luminous objects.

  The Syrian Army said that the air defenses were triggered by enemy targets coming from the direction of the southern province of Quneitra.

  Meanwhile, people in the capital heard explosions reverberating across the capital in the evening.

  If confirmed to be an attack, it wouldn't be the first Israeli missile attack to target Syrian sites.

  Israel has repeatedly targeted Syrian sites on the pretext that it was targeting sites belonging to Iran-backed militia such as the Lebanese Hezbollah group.
